Antony saves United’s blushes but this star confirmed his fate after disastrous display vs Burnley

(A score of 6 is around average)

Andre Onana 7- Kept United in the game with multiple marvellous saves, but the game will be remembered for his cleaning out the Burnley player to concede a penalty.

Diogo Dalot 5- A come-down from his usual high standards as he wasn’t able to get involved in either phase of play.

Harry Maguire 7- Held the fort with some last-ditch interventions and clearances as Burnley ran through United’s non-existent midfield.

Casemiro 3- Was going fine for him before he inexplicably headed a nothing ball straight up in the air in his own box which led to Onana’s error and Burnley’s penalty. Continues a chastening season.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka 4- Not threatening anybody’s place in the team with recent displays. Could have made much more of an impression with this long run in the team but looks a level below the standard required to play consistently for United.

Kobbie Mainoo 6- Went close to scoring with a shot from the edge of the box but otherwise couldn’t control the flow of the game as he has made a habit of doing.

Christian Eriksen 4- After Sheffield United’s obliging display, United went back to chaos and a non-existent midfield as Eriksen suffered due to the pace of the game.

Antony 6- Involved in attacks but never threatening to score until he latched onto a misplaced Burnley pass and finished at the far post. Improved second-half.

Bruno Fernandes 7- United’s best player creatively as he tried to start attacks and was full of invention and effort but teammates let him down with their finishing.

Alejandro Garnacho 5- The biggest culprit of missed chances as he fluffed many which should have given United some cushion to protect. Still he just keeps going and that’s a trait worth admiring.

Rasmus Hojlund 5- United don’t involve him at all but he doesn’t help himself either by struggling with holding up the ball. Remained on the fringes.
